THREATENED SPECIES HABITAT RESTORATION IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA
This project seeks to create habitat for the critically endangered Western Ringtail Possum and to enhance the condition of Lake Toolibin, an internationally recognised Ramsar wetland.
The plantings in the Tuart Forest National Park and Collie River Foreshore will create additional habitat for Western Ringtail Possums allowing the populations in these areas to grow and better protect the species.
Lake Toolibin is one of the last remaining fresh water wetlands in the Western Australian wheatbelt. The restoration of Lake Toolibin will create additional habitat around this important wetland as well as helping suppress saline groundwater levels that threaten the wetland environment.
